3 places where it’s hard to eat smart when you’re stressed and tired

Are you feeling down or stressed? Having mood swings? Lacking energy and enthusiasm to do the things you love? In the mornings you wish it already was the evening? When you’re tired and stressed, it’s really hard to eat smart. When both body and mind are lacking energy, it’s easy to make the wrong choices.

When tired you’ll most likely end up having habits like this:

When stressed

At the store:

  • You pick up the groceries on autopilot
  • At the latest on the cashier you put a high energy chocolate bar on the shopping line to be eaten immediately

At the lunch buffet:

  • You’ll choose the biggest and greasiest pasta portion

At the café:

  • You’ll cannot resist having a donut with a cup of coffee

Being stressed at these 3 places – store, lunch, and café – will lead to:

  • Having the same old tiring food day after day
  • Getting your blood sugars quickly up and down all the time
  • Creating a cycle of tiredness, mood swings and eating more and more
  • In the long run weight gain

Being busy and stressed will make you eat wrong/unbalanced.

Eating smart helps you to get your energy levels up.

How to eat smart? Remember these 5 things:

  1. Eat regularly
  2. Pay attention especially to breakfast, snack before lunch, lunch and afternoon snack
  3. Having fruits and vegetables on each meal
  4. Eating quality, high fiber carbs – not too much, not too little
  5. Having 10 glasses of water in a day
Eating on a regular basis makes it easy to make smart choices. Almost like by itself.

Feeling tired and stressed? It’s a sign of something

If you’re always tired, take a moment to think about the following:

  • Are you sleeping enough? Well enough? Pay attention to getting a good night sleep.
  • Your work, is it too hectic?
  • When was the last time you took a break/holiday just for yourself?
  • Is your mind recovering? How about your body?
  • Are you working out too hard? Are you eating amounts in balance with training amounts?
  • Are you eating a lot at once? Are you meals balanced?

Today people are more stressed and tired than ever before. When stressed, our body reacts to the stress causing us to eat “wrong”. Eating smart helps to prevent tiredness and to cope with stress better. Eating smart helps to avoid the cycle of stress. That is why we created the See How You Eat Coach – for people to learn the benefits of eating proper balanced meals on regular basis.

Eat regularly – eat smart.
